Nara-Narayana: Srila Prabhupada managed to encourage every one of his disciples. He made them feel they had worth, that he loved them, and he showed that he knew their particular problems. Some were problem cases who could not work well with others, and some were always unsteady. One devotee with problems once came before Srila Prabhupada and pleaded for some relief. "Srila Prabhupada, I would like to apologize for being so fallen and wretched. I never seem to be able to do anything right. I try to give some advice to people, but it's no use, because even if I think I'm right, they tell me I'm wrong. I just want your forgiveness because I'm so confused." Srila Prabhupada replied, "They criticized Lord Caitanya and Krishna." The dejected devotee was astounded to hear this, but he thought maybe Prabhupada did not understand what he meant. "Srila Prabhupada, I am not trying to criticize Lord Caitanya and Krishna. I'm just trying to apologize. I'm sorry that I'm so fallen, that I'm not better than I am." Prabhupada repeated, "They criticized Lord Caitanya and Krishna. Even when Lord Krishna was here, they did not accept. Only a few hundred people accepted that He was God. Everyone else was criticizing. And when Lord Caitanya was here, they even threw a pot at Lord Nityananda. They did not like to accept Him. So what to speak of you and I?" The dejected disciple then became overwhelmed to understand that Srila Prabhupada had indeed understood him, understood him better than he knew himself. "Then what is to be done?" asked the disciple. "Just go on trying?" "Yes," said Srila Prabhupada.
